The Pass

11 Feb - 6 Mar 2021

Past Event

Fixed Foot Productions presents the Australian premiere of John Donnelly's critically acclaimed play, The Pass—a powerful, timely drama that asks: how much are you willing to lose in order to win?

Jason and Ade have been in the academy of a famous English football club since they were eight years old. It's the night before the game that will change their lives forever—their debut Champions League match.

Full of nervous energy, they skip, fight, joke, tease each other… until something passes between them. One moment that will reverberate through the next ten years of their lives—a decade of fame and failure, of secrets and lies—in the high-stakes world of professional sport where image is everything.


The Pass is presented as part of Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. For more Mardi Gras highlights, visit

"Acerbically witty and horribly gripping."
